Linda Gartz discusses her book Redlined: A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community in 1960s Chicago

Join author, educator, and archivist, Linda Gartz, for a discussion of her award-winning book Redlined: A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community in 1960s Chicago. She connects the dots between today’s racial profiling and inequities to the government policy of redlining. Most recently, we’ve seen Black Americans die at double the rates of whites from Covid-19, and George Floyd’s murder aroused world-wide protests against systemic racism, like redlining.

During this virtual presentation and discussion, Linda will speak, read short excerpts from Redlined, and talk about the federal government’s redlining policies that separated America into Black and White. She’ll also share digitized versions of original 1940s redlining maps. There will be time for Q&A. 

Six-time Emmy-honored Linda Gartz is a documentary producer & author of the award-winning book, Redlined. Her TV work has aired on all the major networks and Investigation Discovery. She produced videos hosted by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou. Gartz has been published in local and national magazines and newspapers, including The Chicago Tribune. She earned her BA and MAT from Northwestern University and studied at the University of Munich. To learn more, go to www.LindaGartz.com
